Cabin Crew Bulletin 1969

Cabin Crew Bulletin 1969

Planes and Girls
BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation, the precursor to British Airways) Cabin Crew Bulletin, June 1969. In the 1960’s and 70’s BOAC used to employ so-called ‘National stewardesses’ (this opportunity appeared only to be available to women but correct me if I’m mistaken) from countries like Japan, India and Pakistan and this edition features one such stewardess from Japan on what was then known as the Polar Route (London - Anchorage - Tokyo). National stewardesses has special uniforms (the Japan one is featured here) and the route had its own brand (also featured here). I’ve also included an article about the new (in 1969) BOAC USA advertising campaign and some examples included in this edition.

louise.rudkin: "Reposting some of my favourite TC memories 🛬 two years ago today I was offered the job at Thomas Cook and I remember crying as I was so happy! It was the best job I’ve ever had and I’m still so sad that it’s over. I met the best people and had the most fun with my pals. I miss gossiping on night flights when everyone else was asleep, flying over London at night time (and hearing the important words: 10 mins till landing!!) and going into the flight deck and seeing views you don’t usually get to see. I can’t wait to get back flying this year - the world looks better from above! 🌍 ✈️" ©️📸@louise.rudkin Source
